  1. Try Delftship - theres a free version and the pro isn't that expensive.
  2. We had an excellent Slalom cup for foiling Mini40's at Gosport - at times we had half a dozen boats foiling apparent wind and trading gybes at some great speeds.

  4. Be interested to know what advice you've been given to cause such a U turn. The most limiting factor with multihulls is the choice of sailing water and having access to a Lee shore in case the worst happens. If you can find one, Hobbyking did a 1M tri called the Skate - other than being too bendy it was alright for the money.
  5. First up, check out the Mini40 Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/Mini40Multihull/ The fastest boat in the UK is the Shinobi which there's a bit about here : http://www.aardvarkracing.co.uk/radio-boats/rc-foiler-tri/ Disclaimer: I make the Shinobi! Theres a 2 day championships at Gosport in about 5 weeks time, along with the 2 day Flevocup in the Netherlands in May which are the 2 main events in the Mini40 calendar...
  6. Depends how precious you are about weight - a good paintjob can weigh quite a bit, so getting rid of all the old stuff will go a long way.
  7. I actually question whether they're good at all at model scale - I'm going with them because thats what everyone does and while evaluating my hull designs it would be silly to mess around with non-standard rigs.
  8. From what I can gather, most of the fast folk use pocket luff for everything except A rig...
  9. Is Email notification of a Private Message enabled by default? I can totally imagine people not thinking to come back and check for messages on here.
  10. RMG best winch, but I've got a PJ (larger of the two) winch in my RM which has been doing pretty well so far. Bit cheaper, quite a bit lighter too.
  11. Just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone involved, especially the Judges/race committee who had to make a couple of difficult calls. Had a great weekend and enjoyed some really good racing.
  12. Thoroughly enjoyed it - good work all round everyone involved.
  13. Theres been a bit of a revival of radio Multihull racing over the past few years led by Mike Dann down at Gosport. As such we're having a 2 day open this year and trying to encourage as many visitors as possible, even have a few European boats signed up. If you've got one lying around gathering dust or even if you just fancy having a gander at these rapid racers then get down to Gosport MYBC on the 1st and 2nd of April. More info can be found on https://modelmultis.wordpress.com/ ' alt=''>
  14. I was planning on bringing a new boat to the Nationals - I understand that the registrar will be away between now and then so I would like to know whether I can bring a new, measured boat, but without the 'official' paperwork from the registrar?
